This invention relates to a folding bedstead
construction, more particularly to a small doll
or child’s bed. The principal object of the inven
tion is to provide a simple and economical con
struction which can be folded ?at for shipping
purposes, which can be quickly and easily erected
by a child, and which, when erected, will provide
a substantial, non-collapsing bedstead.
Other objects and advantages reside in the de
tail construction of the invention, which is de
signed for simplicity, economy, and e?iciency.
These will become more apparent from the fol
lowing description.
In the following detailed description of the in
The outer extremity of the hook members I1
terminate in hooks [9 having rounded ends 20.
The hooks I9 are so positioned as to engage a
cross member 2I, there being one of these cross
members in each of the head and foot frames I3
and I4.
Thus, when the head and foot frames are
swung upwardly to their vertical positions, the
cross members ZI will come in contact with the
10 rounded extremities of the members I5. This will
force the latter members downwardly until the
hooks I9 snap upwardly around the cross mem
